Americana/folk artist Saw Black has been building up the anticipation of his forthcoming release of his sophomore album, Water Tower, with several track releases and videos.
The local singer/songwriter released “Melted” back in March, a song tackling addiction, which was inspired by two of his former high school classmates who overdosed on opioids. Prior to that, the Crystal Pistol Records owner released the track “Mama Knows“, and a video for his first single off the album, “Water Tower”, back in February, which was directed, filmed, and edited by Chris Damon of Good Day RVA.
Now, we get the pleasure of hearing a brand new track, “Into the Air”, along with some sweet visuals, courtesy of local film collective, RVA Track. It’s a sweet, heartfelt, love song and another great tune off the upcoming album, which shows off Black’s vocals and songwriting ability. The song features the talents of fellow musicians Matthew Kuester, Doug Fuller, Austin Tekamp, and Crytal Pistol Records’ Pete Curry, who are also featured on the album. American Paradox’s Scott Lane, along with Daniel Bagbey, Sho Kellem, Gabrielle Silvers, and Austin Tekamp were also involved in making this video come to life.
You can catch Saw Black this Thursday, May 3 at Strange Matter with Caitlin Rose and Kernal and on June 1 he will take the stage at Friday Cheers on Brown’s Island with Tyler Childers before he hits the road for a short tour the rest of the month. Water Tower will drop May 15 via WarHen Records and Crystal Pistol Records, you can pre-order the vinyl here.
